We closed to the public in mid-March due to the outbreak of Covid-19, but we have been streaming live from the museum with friends. The first was with David Metcalfe, @liminalanalytics to discuss his research into all things PSI, folk saint Santa Muerte, Covid 19 related magic, and more. Facebook.com/witchmuseum It’s fun to contrast this with Ray going on TV back in the day in the 1960s and photographing the television while recording the interviews on reel to reel audio cassette. This is our first experiment in this, so please, be kind! 🙂

David B. Metcalfe is a researcher, writer and multimedia specialist focusing on the areas where creativity, culture, and consciousness collide. In 2011 he established the Liminal Analytics: Applied Research Collaborative to focus on building multidisciplinary lines of communication through applied scholarship, digital media and social network development. Metcalfe is the Editor-in-Chief for the Windbridge Research Center’s Threshold: Journal of Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies. In addition, he is currently working on a long-term trans-media project with Dr. R. Andrew Chesnut, Chair of Catholic Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, to document the growth of devotional traditions associated with Santa Muerte.
